If the BCCI persist in their no DRS stance then we need 2 neutral umpires for ODIs in India.
Quite unfair on the umpire, he's clearly no Dharmasena but everyone makes mistakes from time to time.

There was only 1 mistake i can recall this game. KP's wicket and it was a tough decision tbh.
Not your best posting GF, you're better than this.
You're basically saying that he deliberately sent KP on his way because he wasn't Indian, and gave a not out decision with Gambhir because he was Indian.
There are also only 2 umpires, so not exactly too big a coincidence that the umpire that gave Gambhir not out was the same one.

I'm not a fan of the local umpires, but not because I think they favour India, I just think they're not very good. There's only three international tours on right now, surely they can high 9 quality umpires for all of them?
I remember Ravi's debut game. It was a couple of local umpires and there were about 4-5 howlers in 40 overs of cricket, favouring both sides.

When there's no DRS available you shouldn't have local umpires. There's been one or two ridiculous decisions going against England this series.
The home board typically gets the least benefit out of it. They're paying for it. Decisions typically favour the home side. Way to incentivize.
DRS for all and tell the BCCI to go **** themselves.
He was the same umpire who gave quite a few crucial decisions against India in the Pakistan series.
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Congrats India on reaching no 1 (lol that Franklin helped India more than his own team - must be on BCCI payroll )
